Tennis: Filling the void left by WTA Finals

Click HERE

Note the stats:
-The WTA Finals will move to Shenzhen, China, from next year, in a decade-long deal reportedly worth some US$1 billion (S$1.3 billion).

-Singapore is believed to have spent US$14 million for each of the five editions of the WTA Finals it hosted,

Note some of the objectives behind the hosting, e.g. tourism, getting the locals interested in the sport, heighten international profile of the country.....

Qns:
1. Hosting major sporting events creates more problems than benefits. Do you agree? (Cam. 2005)
2. Does sport merit the vast sums of money that are spent on it? (Cam. 2010)
